Most of the alerts can be verified in video evidence before the security guards are dispatched to the site. We have concluded 19 most frequent alert conditions in a security event. As soon as any of the alert conditions occurs, the GV-Center V2 can automatically activate alarms to notify the operators or the authorities designate, such as security station. The security personnel can thus verify the nature of alarms on the spot and take proper actions. Meanwhile an SMS or e-mail message of alerts will be sent to the local GV-System / GV-VMS subscriber or other authorities, such as school administrators. This mechanism of GV-Center V2 and its security network can successfully reduce the probability of false alarms.

Note:. If you want to perform GPU decoding, refer to the GPU Decoding Specifications.

GPU Decoding Specifications
A higher total frame rate can be achieved if your CPU or external VGA supports GPU decoding.
On-board VGA: GPU decoding is only supported when using the following Intel chipsets:
For H.264 Video Compression
• 2nd Generation Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 Desktop Processors (Sandy Bridge) - only support 1 MP to 2 MP videos
• 3rd Generation Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 Desktop Processors (Ivy Bridge)
• 4th Generation Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 Desktop Processors (Haswell / Haswell Refresh)
• 6th Generation Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 Desktop Processors (Skylake)

For H.265 Video Compression
• 6th Generation Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 Desktop Processors (Skylake)
External VGA: GPU decoding is only supported when using NVIDIA graphics cards with compute capability 3.0 or above and memory 2 GB or above. To look up the commute capability of the NVIDIA graphics cards, refer to: https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-gpus.
Note: NVIDIA graphic cards do not support H.265 GPU decoding.
On-board VGA + external VGA: To have both the on-board VGA and external VGA perform GPU decoding, the VGAs must follow their respective specifications listed above.
1. If you have both on-board VGA and external VGA installed, the on-board VGA must be connected to a monitor for H.264 / H.265 GPU decoding.
2. You can install multiple external graphics cards if needed.
